BIKER BABE

I thought I would include some pictures of Chris and Aleita biking. Riding this bike is one of Aleita's absolute favorite things to do. Santa brought her the tandem part for Christmas, and she took to it like a fish to water. Every day on the way home from school, she begs to go bike riding - - and it has greatly improved her behavior each day at school, as she only gets to go for a ride if she has been good. She is so proud when other people see her riding her bike because she feels like such a big kid. I can also attest to the fact that it is one heck of a workout for the adult doing the actual work on the front end. In addition to the extra weight from the bike frame and Aleita, it also improves your balance and coordination. I don't think there is much that makes Aleita quite as happy as going for a cruise on her bike.

We got a tandem attachment for Truman recently. He's not a big fan of bike riding but we're trying to warm him to the idea.

I have never seen that before. How cool! I would have loved that as a little girl. I'll have to remember that for when Lucy gets older.
